Description Simon 2017-02-02 15:07:55 UTC
Description of problem: 

When one uses the drag-and-drop function (for example for a text passage) in Firefox and meanwhile uses Alt +  Tab to switch to another program, it is not possible to use the cursor for clicking anymore (clicking in the Gnome shell works, though).
To make the mouse cursor work again, it is necessary to return to Firefox and press the Enter or Space key.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 51.0.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox and use the drag-and-drop function somewhere, for example for a text passage.
2. While dragging switch to another program with Alt + Tab
3. Now it is impossible to click somewhere with the mouse cursor and the text passage one tried to drag-and-drop is also displayed in the other program.

Actual results:
Unable to click with the mouse cursor in any program (in the Gnome shell it is working though). 

Expected results:
Mouse cursor keeps working.

Thunderbird is also showing the same bug. Except those two programs, using drag-and-drop while switching programs works just fine.

Hm, I cannot reproduce in Xorg session, only Wayland.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2017-11-16 19:32:50 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2017-12-12 10:32:33 UTC
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
